"Was involved in a small bus accident this morning, everyone's ok and we're on a new not so broken bus headed to Little Rock," the singer tweeted following the crash.
Josh, who reports that the accident happened when the bus hit a guardrail, admits it was a scary few minutes for everyone on board. "It's not a fun way to wake up, being tossed out of the bunk," he acknowledges to Taste of Country. "It was a close call, but thank God nobody was hurt, and we made it to the show on time. Hopefully we can check this off the list forever."
This year has been a tough one for bus mishaps. Lee Brice, Chris Young, Jerrod Niemann and Joe Diffie have all watched their homes-away-from-home go up in flames in 2012, while Justin Moore and Bucky Covington both suffered bus accidents.
Josh, who left RCA Records in July, will resume touring as scheduled, with a show in Tennessee tomorrow night (Sept. 11), followed by concerts in Virginia, Iowa and Minnesota. He's out playing hits both old and new, the latter of which will be on a forthcoming album that the Wisconsin native has already recorded and will hopefully release on a new label soon.
"I brought a lot of writers out on the road, so the songwriting hasn't gone down at all," he told The Boot of his sophomore CD. "I make sure I write often, but the time to get into the studio was ridiculous. It was a Monday here and Tuesday there ... pretty much whenever the schedule would allow. It was probably a four month process as opposed to a week-and-a-half. If you put them all together they add up to that, but it was just ridiculous, waiting."
